......in the neighborhood.
No, no new doggie for us....at least yet.
But friends Suzanne and Dan got a new Rhodesian Ridgeback. A girl one. A few weeks ago, they were so happy to tell us they were getting her over the Memorial Day weekend. They went to Maryland to pick her up.
I ran into Dan at work, and he told me to stop by to see her. As luck would have it, Dan and I pulled into the 'hood at the exact same time, so he went to get Suzanne and the dogs.
I don't really know the spelling - but that's how my mother spells her name. And she was not thrilled when I told her they named their puppy after her (even though they've never met or even know of each other).
Eleanore is not the same color as Oliver, or (the Other)Brett's Ridgebacks.
Eleanore is not shy about going after Oliver. They are very growly-talkie with each other. Dan swears that each dog understands what the other is saying. And Dan and Suzanne are good about letting them work it out. I'd be breaking up everything - just in case.
Suzanne realizes this is one of the last times she'll be able to hold Eleanore this way.
Eleanore is three months old.
....and she likes to cool off in the dirt and under some bushes.
